I have been teaching mostly first and second year Spanish language at university level for over 10 years. I love to travel and learned much of my Spanish in Costa Rica where I worked with a weekly newspaper for my undergraduate internship. I have been to Costa Rica, Honduras, Brazil, Panama, Nicaragua, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Spain and Mexico and several other non-Spanish speaking countries.

When I began to learn Spanish it was very exciting for me when I was speaking with a native Spanish speaker to actually a. understand what they were saying and b. be understood when I was speaking.

I first of all want to find out what your goal is for tutoring and we will discuss what method will work for you individually. I usually find out what you have an interest in topic/ hobby-wise and try to tie those in. I enjoy using reading material from news articles to children's books.

I also do mostly nature and culture photography in my spare time as well as writing. During my undergraduate schooling I took all the photography classes, was photographer for the yearbook for a semester and the newspaper for two two years. While there I took several photography camping trips with instruction from talented photographers.

For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Photography

I have done photography for over 15 years. I took all the classes at Troy University that were available at the time. (black and white, slides, Photoshop and photojournalism). I also participated in several camping photography trips with excellent instructors. Since then I have used my expertise to enhance my publications in newspapers and magazines as a freelancer. I have an eye for leading lines, composition and catching action. I want to give others tips on exposure, composition and lighting that I have learned over the years. Every year or two I have an article and pictures published in a State park magazine and local newspaper and donate my images several non-profit organizations focused on land conservation and trail-building . I had several of my images published in the Tico Times in Costa Rica and the annual guidebook.

Spanish

I have been teaching at the university level for more than 10 years teaching first and second year Spanish. I have a Masters of Hispanic Studies from Auburn University.
